Labiaplasty Procedures: Understanding the Basics

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess labial tissue, the folds of skin that surround the vaginal opening. The procedure is not intended to treat the outer lips or labia majora, but the inner vaginal lips or labia minora. In some instances, after surgery, the labia minora can be completely tucked up within the larger folds of skin.

Your Consultation

Although many of our patients express embarrassment or hesitation about discussing their concerns with a plastic surgeon, dissatisfaction with this intimate area of the body is actually very common. Dr. Berbari will perform a thorough examination and discuss your treatment options with you during a consultation.

Discussing Concerns & Goals

Be prepared to discuss specific concerns and goals related to your labia. Additional procedures can treat the labia majora and surrounding areas for enhanced cosmetic results.

Benefits of the Procedure

Labiaplasty offers physical and emotional benefits to our patients. We often hear afterwards from our patients that they only wish they had prioritized getting treatment sooner.

More Aesthetic Appearance

Overall, patients benefit from a more uniform, aesthetically pleasing vulva and vagina. This can help you feel more feminine and youthful.

Improved Comfort

Although the procedure is typically used to address cosmetic concerns on the labia minora, enlarged labia can cause discomfort during exercise and intercourse, and can even be uncomfortable in tight clothing.

Better Quality of Life

After surgery, many patients report improved comfort during activities like biking, a more satisfying sex life, and overall increased confidence.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Undergoing labiaplasty is an extremely personal decision. Genetics, deformity, certain medical conditions, as well as pregnancy and childbirth, can all contribute to changes or abnormalities in labial tissue. Patients should have a treatable concern and also:

Be in Good Health

If you are concerned about the appearance or function of your labia, are in good general health, and have a clear understanding of what you can gain from the surgery, you are most likely a good candidate.

Have Realistic Expectations

It is important to know that like any surgical procedure, labiaplasty does pose some risks, including post-surgical bleeding and oozing, and the very rare side effects of hematoma and infection.

"Dr. Berbari uses advanced techniques that leave no visual or palpable scars on the vagina." 

Day of Procedure

"Dr. Berbari uses advanced techniques that leave no visual or palpable scars on the vagina." 

Administer Sedation

Patients may choose from a range of sedation options, including local and general anesthesia, to ensure their complete comfort and relaxation throughout treatment. 

Modify Tissue

During surgery, Dr. Berbari uses a scalpel or Co2 laser to gently trim and reshape tissue on the labia minora.

Apply Stitches

Once the desired result has been achieved, dissolvable stitches will be applied to the labia. Dr. Berbari uses advanced techniques that leave no visual or palpable scars on the vagina. 

Attend Follow-Ups

You will be given detailed post-surgical instructions to minimize the risk of complications, such as discomfort, and undergo periodic check-ups to monitor healing of the vaginal tissue.

Imagine Feeling Totally Confident in Any Clothing

A successful labiaplasty can allow you to feel comfortable and confident enough in your own skin to wear outfits you used to avoid. 

When Can I Return to Work & Other Activities?

Although this soft tissue is very delicate, women who have their labia treated can expect to return to work and other activities fairly quickly. Generally, a week should be devoted to your recovery. You can expect some slight bleeding for a few days and you might find it helpful to wear a mini-pad during this time.

Most patients do not find that their labia in pain afterward, but you can discuss your options for pain medication during your initial consultation. Dr. Berbari will provide final approval but you should be able to return to physical activities, such as jogging and yoga, within a month.
